Ah, leave it to the insane tube heads to create a glowing beast to do the work of a Swatch. 103 garden variety tubes power the little Nixie tubes down front. The Nixies are the ones with the digits, a classic tube before digital was the new kid on the block. We covered the very cool $500 NixiChron before, the chromed-out practical Nixie clock. Alas, the story of this monster's creation is all in German, but visit the site to see some pictures. Story via Gizmodo.
